A lightweight version for integration

Sorry that I'm not a fluent english speaking, I will try to explain as well as I'll can.

I'm not really the best programmer in PHP, I know it enough for the basics and to modify lightly an existing application, so it is not easy for me to integrate b2evo in my existing sites.

The problem I run in is that there is too much functionnalities implemented in the header/footer sections that are driven with functions that are, for some, really complex. This is a good thing because it make b2evo a very robust application but not easy to adjust. My own PHP sites are build in the same way, with a header & footer to set the common design of all pages, and a core (body part) that contains the specific part of each page.

For example, this experimental site, http://estran.anime.om-h.net/site/ where the applications "guestbook" and "calendar" are third-pary apps but very easy to integrate. The "notes" link jumps to a b2evo sub-site, but as it appears I couldn't adapt it to keep the same look than the global site.

The idea is to have a b2evo version, or a b2evo skin, where the header / footer part are empty or very light, and the dashboard & blogs links bars come to the top of the core part, under the header. This is only for the public part of the site, not for the dashboard part.

Yes, but, as said in its presentation, "You only need to use this file for advanced use/customization of b2evolution". The purpose here is to make a non-advanced customization, something easy to use and configure, with no more than define the type and basic size of the font, left or right sidebar...

Anyway, I really don't understant how to set a "non skinned blog" if not done when installing. There is no information in the a_noskin.php comments to explain the way to do it.

At the beginning of a_noskin you should see sth like

$blog = 1;

Put the ID of your blog in there and then you will have then contents of your blog on that page, which you can customize.
